Hi,
TZ5 is a fairly reliable and solid camera. It's been out for a while and there are still no known issues with it.
The ones I've been asked to repair have all been damaged due to owners' negligence (usually been dropped, had sand in lens mechanism or suffered water damage). I still haven't encountered a TZ5 which just suddenly "stopped working".
From a repairman's point of view I can say that TZ5, just as the TZ3 before it, is really really well built. It's easy to dismantle and put together. Everything is well thought of. The lens is a work of art.

Of course you need to be careful with this camera to avoid e.g. water or sand - these might kill your tz5. Sand clogs the lens easily (of course this is an issue with just about any compact camera)
I can definitely recommend it.
Hope this helps,
Raf

    I did drop my tz5 on a concrete sidewalk, nothing broke on the outside, but will not work at all.

SOURCE: panasonic lumix DMC-TZ5 flash stopped working. Any help?

Check to see if you've accidentally turned it off. Is there an icon of a lightning bolt in a circle with a line through it on the screen?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 able to download to ipod


Not directly. You can download the pictures to a computer, then upload them to your iPod. If you connect the iPod and the camera or its memory card, you can transfer the pictures from one to the other without storing them on the computer.

Tz5 video freezes on pc


The Lumix Tz5 records in .MOV format, which isn't compatible with Windows Media Player. You will have to download Apple's Quicktime player. You can get it here: http://www.apple.com/uk/quicktime/download/

Of course. I'm assuming you're not already using it.
